Out on a walk at our summer paradise island Fårö island, Gotland, Sweden we found some true Swedish old berries: Smultron (Fragaria vesca) – or wild/wood strawberries as they are called in English. They grows naturally in the Northern Hemisphere.

Sweden, Fårö Smultron berries

There is nothing that gives more summer of a feeling than smultron or a more genuine taste – much more than regular strawberries.

We should have thread them upon a grass straw, that is the old traditional way of carrying them… But they were tasting so good that we never got anyone left to put on the straw!

    HA! No time for a grass straw. I love it. My kind of berries found in the wild. Just eat them as you pick them! :)
